Do NOT believe this crazy Arsenal transfer rumour 0

Posted on February 16, 2015 by admin

There are a few new Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds since the January window closed a couple of weeks ago. Some may have some truth behind them and some may be possibilities but there is definitely one that is not going to happen.

According to a Metro report the Gunners are all set to complete the signing of the Barcelona and Brazil international defender Dani Alves in the summer.

Arsenal taking BIG risk playing Alexis Sanchez today? 0

Posted on February 15, 2015 by admin

It was a big surprise to see the name of Alexis Sanchez on the Arsenal team sheet today for the visit of \MIddlesborough in the fifth round of the FA cup. We had been told that the Chilean striker was not likely to play as his knee was still swollen after Tuesday night.

We know that Sanchez always wants to play and that this is an important game for the Gunners, but Wenger has made lots of changes, giving the likes of Chambers, Flamini, Gabriel and Gibbs rare starts. And with Theo Walcott finding his form and fitness, it is not as if the manager did not have a good option to play instead of Sanchez.

Arsenal boss planning to do an `LVG´ against Boro? 0

It was a bit of a surprise to hear the Arsenal boss sticking up for his opposite number over at Old Trafford this week. I don´t think it would have been the same from Arsene Wenger if it was still his old enemy Sir Alex Ferguson still in charge, but the Frenchman has so far managed not to fall out with the new man Louis van Gaal.

Arsenal prepare BIG money summer swoop for La Liga star 0

Posted on February 13, 2015 by admin

If there really is truth to this latest Arsenal transfer rumour then it shows us fans a few things. One is that Arsene Wenger has no problems in continuing to spend the big money on the sort of transfer deals that we had not seen for years before the stunning signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.

Because £25 million for a defender would represent another break from tradition for the Arsenal boss and that is what a Metro report claims that we will pay Madrid for another of their stars Fabio Coentrao in the summer.

La Liga star heading to Arsenal after DEMANDING transfer? 0

Posted on February 10, 2015 by admin

Arsenal were strongly linked with this Mexico international last summer after he impressed Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal scouting team with his performances during the World Cup finals in Brazil. But the talented keeper Guillermo Ochoa ended up completing a transfer from French club Ájaccio to Malaga in Spain´s La Liga while Arsenal snapped up David Ospina who had also caught the eye with Costa Rica during the tournament.

But we could soon have both keepers at the Emirates according to a Metro report. Ochoa has not settled at Malaga and has only played six times for them all season and that has led him to demand a transfer away in the summer.

Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck seems to be back to where he started! 0

Posted on February 10, 2015 by Patrick

Danny Welbeck was thrown straight back into the starting line-up on his return from injury in Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat by Spurs. In many ways it was a vote of confidence from Arsene Wenger. But at the same time there are now going to be questions about Welbeck’s role in the team, and where exactly will he fit in?

Welbeck left Manchester United in the summer window for Arsenal to play regular first-team football. He also wanted the chance to play as a central striker, having done so more often for England than United. He was initially handed that task by Wenger, but that was largely due to Olivier Giroud’s injury. Since Giroud’s return, Welbeck has been given the same wide attacking role that he was often employed in by United.

Will Arsenal REALLY let Wilshere transfer to Liverpool? 1

Posted on February 09, 2015 by admin

Although Arsene Wenger publicly offered his support to the under fire Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere last week, there is a feeling that the Frenchman could finally be losing patience with the 23-year old who joined the club as a promising nine year old back in 2001.

A Metro report claims that Wilshere’s latest public smoking gaffe, when he was pictured in a nightclub holding a shisha tobacco pipe, could have been the last straw for his manager. And that could open the door for the Gunners’ Premier League rivals Liverpool to swoop for young Jack when the transfer window opens in the summer as they seek to find a replacement for the long serving Steven Gerrard.

TOP Italian star set for STUNNING summer transfer to Arsenal? 0

Posted on February 08, 2015 by admin

Arsenal were linked with the transfer of the French international central midfielder Yohan Cabaye before he moved from Newcastle to the French champions PSG last year. And then the wealth of options in the centre available to Laurent Bland led to suggestions that their young star Adrien Rabiot might be heading to north London, either permanently or on loan.

But both of those players are now featuring more regularly for PSG and that along with their need to comply with the FFP rules means that they may be ready to sell their Italy international star Marco Verratti , according to a Metro report.

Arsenal to drop Ramsey after Spurs shocker? 2

Posted on February 08, 2015 by admin

Without naming the names of any of his Arsenal players in particular, Arsene Wenger made it clear in his post match interview that he felt that many of them had not played at their normal level. His interview reported by Sky Sports shows that the Frenchman was not happy with the defending but he seemed more concerned that our midfield and attack did not do enough to alleviate the pressure and give Tottenham players problems at the other end.

Wenger said, “The only regret I can have today is that we gave two cheap goals away, but Tottenham deserved to win this game.

Spurs loss gives Arsenal BIG trouble in Top Four fight 1

Posted on February 07, 2015 by admin

It was not just a bad day for the Arsenal fans who will now have to suffer the taunts of our rivals from down the Seven Sisters road. The away day defeat by Tottenham in the north London derby has left Arsenal in real danger of missing out on a top four finish this season.

Any lingering Premier League title hopes were extinguished as Chelsea beat Aston Villa and now it is all about the top four for Arsene Wenger and the Gunners. But with Southampton grabbing an extra time winner away to QPR and with Man United still to play tomorrow, that is now looking like a tall order.
